“Perfect first night of holiday”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Ideally positioned between Jo'burg and the Ocean, -minutes from the highway but blissfully quiet.

As a three generation family group,this was the perfect first night of our holiday.Large,comfortable rooms would compete with most 5*hotels. Excellent showers.

Delicious dinner enjoyed on the terrace, with friendly but not familiar service.

£55 each for DBB inc. three bottles of wine. Extraordinary value.!

Next time, we'll stay longer and use as a base to visit so much that the area has to offer.

Had a nice time at the lodge, Nice and quiet. Breakfast was excellent. The lack of good places to go for supper in Winterton was a bit disappointing. Would have preferred to have nice home cooked supper at the lodge.

We stayed at Rose Cottage for three night and found it a good central venue to explore the Drakensberg area as well as the Battlefield's. The setting is quiet and relaxing in a picturesque location just outside Winterton. The main building has the wow factor as it has a striking high ceiling and is where breakfast is served. Breakfast is of a good quality as expected when travelling in SouthAfrica. We stayed in the deluxe Suite which was spacious throughout, although a little tired in decor. It was also unusual to have padlocks on cupboards that contained clothing and belongings (one cupboard was not secured) of someone else's. I am sure that this was not the case of all rooms but was possibly that the owners used this room when friends stayed as it was closest to their main house. Would we comeback, definitely!

We truly enjoyed our 1 night stay. It was so homely, warm and relaxed. Nothing was too much trouble. We arrived late and yet they were prepared to serve us supper.( the meal was prepared with love.) If we are in area again we will only consider Rose Cottage

We had a very enjoyable 2 day/2night stay in your beautiful Rose Cottage - We wished we could have stayed longer as the whole ambience was that of peace & tranquility. Your service was excellant and the bedrooms very well equiped and spotlessly clean. We do hope that we will return the next time we visit South Africa.

Thank you so much for the warm Hospitality.we stayed for one night when we were working at Didima Camp 45km away from Winterton Country Lodge at Rose Cottage. Supper was awesome and breakfast was great..I told my friends that on my birthday i would like them to take me to Winterton..I especially liked the way they made beds and the corner tub mmmmmm that did it for me. It is so quiet around the area you can actually hear the birds sing...

We ( myself and my wife) enjoyed our stay at Rosé cottage. It was value for money. Thanks to the friendly and warm welcome by the staff. We did not book in advance but did not experience any hustle when we arrived at the lodge. We forgot some of our clothes at the lodge and the management called to inform us about them and promised to send it by post.
